Born in Rio de Janeiro and raised in São Paulo, Rodrigo Zampol has always been attracted to the arts. An architect by training, and with a strong presence in the world of visual arts, he plays with different types of materials and textures, seeking visual results that are almost always unexpected.
Zampol uses different materials in his work, such as metal, paper, leather, plaster, and different types of pigments. His works reflect his personal experience, his worldview, and his research on human history, from ancient civilizations to the present day.


Umbra Series

So much accumulated that it was necessary to vent. Fear and insecurity arrived without an invitation to keep us company. Suddenly it became necessary to release sensations that surrounded us day and night. At times I felt like I was sitting in the dark of an umbra. But I wasn't alone, the whole world was with me. Get it out there, my mind told me. And I did. As if in an attempt to record time, I made art. I gave freedom so that, when faced with the surface, the materials followed their paths. The organic forms that emerged, from a planned chance, were like abstract pieces of a part of me. From a part of us.

Ragisména Series

The Ragisména series, which in Greek means cracked, has its materiality manifested through the desire to recreate and make feelings, memories and mythology tangible in the physical world. The works have their core connected to Dehlos, a ruined island bathed by the Aegean Sea, created by Poseidon, so that Leto could have his children Apollo and Artemis in a protected land. Known for being a sacred place, Dehlos was the most important Panhellenic sanctuary almost 3 thousand years ago. In an equation between mythology and abstraction,
volumes, cracks, lights and shadows come together in matter. The Ragisména work in aluminum is the result of an artistic and artisanal process that dates back to antiquity, when people used fire to shape metal. Casting consists of heating the metal until it becomes liquid and then pouring it into a mold of the work. After cooling, the mold is removed and the piece is polished. In this way, the foundry immortalizes in matter the work conceived by the artist, giving life to his vision and expression.

Works on Paper Series

In this series, water and pigments dance in a liquid choreography, intertwining and painting their own destinies. Each brushstroke traces ephemeral paths that are born, intersect and disappear. Just like life, the work is not limited to beginnings and endings, but celebrates the constant flow, transformation and fleeting beauty of the path taken.
